Amanda Holden has allowed cameras to catch snippets of her home life, including where she lives with her husband Chris Hughes.

It comes as she launched her E4 series The Holden Girls: Mandy and Myrtle, which sees a masked comedian play her nan for a comedy twist.

Several viewers began wondering where actress and media personality Amanda Holden lives, as well as who her husband Chris is.

Some thought that her ‘nan’ may have been unmasked as Chris Hughes, as he did not appear in the first episode. So, who is he and where do they live?
